Queen bestows honor on Miramax’s Weinstein – 2004
NEW YORK — Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein has been awarded an honorary CBE from Queen Elizabeth II.
Award was announced Monday by the British consul-general in New York, Thomas Harris, capping a weekend during which Miramax’s “Kill Bill Vol. 2” received royal treatment from both critics and audiences.
The Commander of the British Empire is the second highest honor awarded by the queen after a knighthood. Unlike the higher nod, however, the CBE does not carry the title of sir.
Honor is in recognition of Weinstein’s contribution to bringing mainstream attention to British film talent and to the national film industry.
“My life and my career have been greatly influenced and enriched by great British filmmakers and authors, and so I am especially honored and humbled to be receiving the CBE,” Weinstein said. “I am very grateful for the chance to work with so many British masters — from the ranks of actors, producers, directors and writers.” – Source

‘In 1997, I was raped by Harvey Weinstein here’: Asia Argento gives powerful speech at Cannes
Italian actress Asia Argento was one of the first women to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault when she told The New Yorker last year that the powerful Hollywood producer forcibly performed oral sex on her in a French hotel during the 1997 Cannes Film Festival when she was 21 years old.
Argento, now 42, said she didn’t tell anyone because she feared the producer would destroy her career. “I know he has crushed a lot of people before,” Argento told the magazine. “That’s why this story — in my case, it’s 20 years old, some of them are older — has never come out.” She characterized coming forward as a terrifying experience — “Just talking to you about it, my whole body is shaking,” she said — but, in doing so, she and several other women contributed to the burgeoning #MeToo movement.
The actress also spoke boldly at the closing ceremony of the 2018 Cannes Film Festival on Saturday, and this time, she did not appear to be shaking. Instead, she bluntly recounted her accusations against Weinstein, pulling no punches.
“In 1997, I was raped by Harvey Weinstein here at Cannes. I was 21 years old. This festival was his hunting ground,” she said.
She was there in 1997 promoting the movie “B. Monkey,” a crime drama she starred in that was distributed by Miramax, the company Weinstein co-founded with his brother, Bob. She said one of Weinstein’s producers invited her to a party at a nearby hotel, only she arrived to find there was no party — only Weinstein waiting for her in a hotel room.- Source
